It is common knowledge that fruits are healthy, nutritious, tasty and bursting with vitamins, roughage and minerals which the body loves.
WHEN TO EAT FRUITS:
Fruits have always been seasonal and our liver struggles with the high levels of fructose if we lose seasonality. High levels of fructose trigger the release of Insulin the anabolic (building)hormone and I am sure you are now familiar with the insulin roller coaster story. Let us be mindful when eating fruits and try not to go through 4 seasons in one single meal or day, for best immunity, disease and weight management Best to have fruits at least on an empty stomach, an hour before your meal to optimise digestion. Citrus fruits for example take about 30 minutes to digest and apples and pears take about 40 minutes. Digestion for fruits occurs in two parts in the mouth and small intestines only. Fruits are not digested in the stomach. So if you eat a meal consisting of proteins like beef, lamb, chicken, nuts etc these take 4 hours to digest in the stomach. If you then have a fruit after your meal as dessert it languishes and ferments in the stomach for 4 hours cause there is no way to leapfrog to the small intestines.
Optimal food digestion and absorption No unnecessary food fermentation and increased putrefaction No bloating and tummy rumblings Regular bowel movement LET your liver live by eating fruits in season, optimise digestion and boost your immune system by eating your fruits at a conducive time
